In late 2017, it was announced by Deadline.com, that former Days of Our Lives star James Lastovic had bagged an important role in an upcoming Netflix TV series ‘Insatiable’. He has been cast as a character named Christian, who will be recurring in the show which is all set to premiere later this year in 2018. According to IMDb, he will be guest-starring in atleast 9 episodes as of now, who knows in future he will be guest-starring in more episodes, for now that’s more then enough for the fans. The dark comedy show is about a coach who was previously a lawyer, taking a bullied teen as his client. Sounds like a fun movie with a talented cast. Joining Lastovic in the show will be the former Disney cutie pie Debby Ryan including Dallas Roberts, Kimmy Shields and Michael Provost.
This has to be one of the best news for the Days of Our Lives fans, who missed seeing him onscreen and were heartbroken when the actor left the show. He may not return to the long running soap opera anytime soon, but he’s all set to appear on another TV show soon and the fans will finally see him back on screen after a couple of months. He rocked the soap opera as everyone’s favorite character Joey Johnson and he’s all set to steal hearts once again by appearing as Christian. The young star was last seen on Days of Our Lives, before his character was sent off to prison for killing Ava Vitali, (played by Tamara Braun) and written out of the show. In a way it’s a good thing it happened, or else Insatiable would have never happened to him. But now that it has, I guess it’s true after all, that whatever happens, it happens for the best. For now the fans can enjoy watching him as Christian, until he returns as Joey. James had appeared on Days of Our Lives in the contract role of Joey for 2 years, before his contract ended and he was let go.
The 23 year old Emmy Nominated actor had started his acting career in 2013, when he booked the lead role of Wesley in a movie called ‘A Talking Pony!?!’ . After that in 2015, he appeared in an episode of Sunday “I Surrender Now” of Musical Concierge mini series, and finally in the same year something exciting happened to him, when he joined the Daytime Emmy Award winning show ‘Days of Our Lives’, the show that made him famous in the soap opera world. The show helped him get recognized, including getting the 2 years experience of his life in the acting world which not every one gets. Even after leaving the show, he only had good things to say about the cast and the show, where he expressed his gratitude of working with Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) and Stephen Nichols (Steve). He even thanked the NBC show for believing in him and casting him on their show. This was truly a dream come true for him as only the talented ones get the opportunity of appearing on the soap opera.
After his Days of Our Lives exit, he wrote and produced a short film called ‘The Doghouse’ where he starred in as well as Rob Patterson. The short film is in the post-production stage which will release later this year.
